User Story Workshop - Creating High Quality User Stories

Presented by: Angela Wick

Let’s get serious about User Stories! Learn what good ones and bad ones look like and correct poor user story habits. Learn how to slice and split stories by increments of value, and learn how to handle technical stories. We will look at common user story mistakes and strategies to correct them. We will also look at techniques that support great user stories, like Story Maps, Acceptance Criteria and where the other details get worked out. Come get serious about User Stories!

This highly interactive workshop helps Agile BAs understand the BA Role on agile teams, and focuses on high-quality user stories and related techniques.
